Manuscript consists of the text of the Tulākāverīmāhātmya of the Āgneya-purāṇa, in 30 Adhyāyas. For other copies of this work, see RAS South Indian Sanskrit MS 131 / Whish MS 130 and RAS South Indian Sanskrit MS 186 / Sanskrit MS 6.
Winternitz notes that there are entries by C. M. Whish dated 'Calicut 1826', but he thinks the MS may be about 50 years older.
